Some interesting moves by the PGA to accommodate for the Olympics (Mid August).  John Deere Classic kinda getting the shaft being played the same weekend as the olympics, and only 1 week between The Open Championship and PGA Championship.

Notable Dates:

-Masters----------Apr 7-10

-Players-----------May 12-15

-US Open--------June 16-19

-Open Champ--July 14-17

-PGA Champ---July 28-31

-Olympics--------Aug 11-14

-Ryder Cup------Sept 30-Oct 2

Humblebrag alert :  I'll be attending the FedEx St.Jude Classic in Memphis and The US Open at Oakmont back-to-back weekends :beer:

How many players will each country have representing them for golf?  Or in particular, USA.  It will certainly dilute some fields, but how bad?  Surely though those top players who plan to compete in the Olympics will be skipping a lot of smaller events because there are so many high profile events clumped together.

As for Jordan Spieth not defending John Deere, that is a shame.  John Deere is always one of my favorite events to watch.

The Olympics, if it was to be held this year, would include:

McIlroy and Lowry (Ire), Spieth, Johnson, Watson, Furyk (USA), Day and Scott (Aus), Rose and Willett (GB), Matsuyama and Iwata (Jap), Stenson and Lingmerth (Swe), Garcia and Jiminez (Spa), Oosthuizen and Grace (Saf), Kaymer and Siem( Ger), Delaet and Hearn (Can), An and Bae (Lor), Aphibarnrat and Jaidee (Tha), Dubuisson and Levy (Fra), Kjeldsen and Bjorn (Dan), Lee and Fox (NZ), Grillo and Cabrera (Arg), Luiten (Ned), Lahiri (Ind), Illonen (Fin), de Jonge (Zim), Haotang (Chi), Zanotti  (Par) ... and that's the half of the field currently in the world's top 150. I'm sure the winner will cherish their medal but will anyone take it seriously? I'd rather they'd made it a 64-player matchplay event, for the novelty if nothing else.

Why wouldn't they take it seriously?  I understand they are all buddy-buddy with each other, but representing your country is always a prideful time.  I think there will be some laughs, but definitely some intense moments as well

It's a rare achievement to call yourself an Olympics Golf medalist.  You better believe they will take it seriously.

It happens once every 4 years, the window to succeed is tiny.
